Looking for the right reel to pair up with an 11' H Shimano Tiralejo rod. Can't decide if a shimano spheros 8000 sw would be better than a shimano saragosa 8000 sw. Applications will be dunking and plugging top water lures. Any suggestion in which reel would be better for those two applications?.
The Shimano Saragosa 8000 would be a better fit for those two applications.

No, I'm referring to the Shimano Spheros SW reels, but the PG and HG reels = are only made in Japan. Could you tell me the difference between the reels?
No. We do not have information on Japanese models. However, if the ratings are the same, the HG would be a faster retrieve.

I've researched the Shimano SW reels and they come in Standard retrieve, PG retrieve, and HG retrieve. Is there a noticeable difference in speed when I crank the handle when retreiving? Would it take longer to reel in a fish with a PG or an HG? And, would how much of a difference would a PG handle pulling in a fish over an HG?
First, I believe you are asking about the Stella and not the Spheros, right? Yes there is a noticeable difference in the retrieve rate of the reel. How much difference depends a lot on the size of the reel.

if I'm targeting Yellowfin tuna up to 100lbs what braided line and topshot would i use, was thinking 50 braid and 80 mono/flouro? I've already purchased the sw8000 and the Shimano Terez heavy action Rod
Hello Tim, It all depends on the technique you will be using to try and catch the tuna. What exact technique will you be using?
